Visiting address

Oude Hoogstraat 22
1012CE Amsterdam

For many years before we started the tea shop, we, Kirsten and Niels, were already addicted to drinking quality loose leaf tea. Halfway through 2013, our idea to start our own tea shop slowly started to take shape. We were of the opinion that Amsterdam needed a tea shop where quality and expertise are of paramount importance. With an eye to the added value for local residents. Which worked! The majority of our clientele still consists of Amsterdammers.

Our range of teas has grown in recent years to a collection of more than 200 types.

The Team: Kirsten and Niels

Het Kleinste Huis is a real family business. As a couple we work 7 days a week on and in the store. Kirsten is originally a product manager and Niels has worked in IT for over 15 years. After 8 years, our enthusiasm and expertise has led to a tea specialist of stature in Amsterdam and beyond.

100% natural tea from Tea shop Het Kleinste Huis

Quality is always our top priority! Due to the size of our store, our stocks of tea are continuously replenished. As a result, we always supply fresh tea of the best quality.

All our teas contain 100% natural ingredients. None of our teas contain artificial fragrances, colors or flavors.

Our collection consists of white tea, green tea, oolong tea, black tea, pu-erh, tisane, rooibos.

Is your desired tea not listed? No problem, send an email to info@hetkleinstehuis.nl and we will look for your favorite tea!

Extensive collection of tea accessories

When brewing quality teas, always use good tea accessories. Theewinkel Het Kleinste Huis has an extensive collection of tea accessories, from sustainable tea strainers to disposable tea filters, from professional teaspoons to timers. All of this and more is for sale in our tea shop

Sustainable tea packaging

One of the advantages of a physical tea shop is that you can experience, taste and smell the teas in real life. In addition, we can measure tea to the desired amount. You are never really stuck with too much tea. Many of our regular customers even bring their own storage can. In this way we also save on packaging and the environment.

Customer Reviews

What do people say about us?​

This smallest store in Amsterdam is a great place to visit. Tea from all over the world can be found here. The shopkeeper is a very pleasant and knowledgeable man. You can taste the tea and have a snack while you do it.
Oscar Bourier
I love this tea shop. So cozy and cute. 200 different teas and then the couple running it is one and only. Gave us a history of the house and super friendly, it was like being welcomed into their home like an old friend. Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam

No, The Smallest House in Amsterdam is not a museum and can therefore not be visited as such.

Would you like to see the inside of the house and know more about its history? Then book a tea package in one of our tea rooms.
